Alabama Judge Suspended for Applying State Law

A state commission suspended Alabama supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, alleging he disregarded “clear law” when instructing state judges to ignore a U.S. supreme Court ruling “establishing nationwide same-sex marriage rights.” The current investigation comes after the commission received complaints about Moore’s actions from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC.)

The SPLC complains that Moore:

— advised state judges to violate a binding federal court order;
— repeatedly commented on pending cases;
— undermined the public’s confidence in the integrity of the judiciary by denigrating the federal courts and threatening to defy them;
— and improperly lent the prestige of his office to the Foundation for Moral Law, a private organization that his wife runs and that he founded.

It’s obvious from a statement made by SPLC President Richard Cohen, that the SPLC isn’t interested in the law, rather the so-called ‘law center’ is more interested in practicing social politics.

“Moore swore to uphold the United States Constitution,” Cohen said. “But he has demonstrated in the past, and now once again, that he is willing to put aside the law when it conflicts with his personal religious beliefs. He cannot be trusted to be an impartial arbiter of the law.”

Moore is simply trying to uphold the state’s law as marriage is a state issue and not a Federal issue as prescribe under the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which reads, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

And not one federally elected or state official – who’ve also sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution – can be found in support of Moore, trying to protect him from what has turned into a Progressive policy witch hunt.
